This beach as are all beaches open to the public in Hawaii. This beach offers access to a bar (Ola at Turtle Bay Resort.) Its nice to have drinks this close to the beach however not on the beach because alcohol on the public beach are not allowed. The snorkling was very easy and some nice fish varieties were observed. The beach staff for Turtle Bay resort was very good at keeping the umbrellas and chairs for the resort guests only. Fresh water shower (compliments of the resort is open to everyone.) The restaurant (Ola) has a public bathroom. Nice sunset.
